Explanation of Outlines. 

The preceding outlines are arranged upon a basis of four 
full studies, twenty exercises per week, besides the work 
required in Elocution and Physical Culture. In the outlines, 
"m" means minor and requires five exercises per week for six 
weeks; "mj" means major and requires ten exercises per week 
for six weeks; "dm" means double minor and requires five 
exercises per week for twelve weeks; "dmj'' means double 
major and requires ten exercises per week for twelve weeks. 
The minor is the unit in arranging the work. A student 
doing full work will carry four minors or a major and two 
minors. The terms "fall," "winter," and "spring" denote 
the three quarters of the year respectively. 

The Credit System. 

A system of earning credits, based on time spent and grade 
secured, has been adopted. A minor in any branch, covering 
six weeks' work and attaining an average grade of at least 70 
per cent, earns one credit. Full work requires the earning of 
four credits each term of six weeks, or twenty-four per year, 
with one credit required additional in Elocution and Physical 
Culture. In these latter branches thirty exercises, average 
grade of 70, will earn one credit. It will appear that the 
Classical and Scientific courses require the earning of 100 
credits in order to graduate. The Literary course, based on 
the carrying of three full studies instead of four, requires 77 
credits in all to graduate. 


The Preparatory Course. 

The covers two years' work, fifty 
credits being required to complete it. It implies the accom- 
plishment of the work of the grammar grade on the part of 
the applicant for admission. It supplements the work of the 
Eighth grade with four minors additional work in Arithmetic, 
three in English Grammar, a double minor each in United 
States History, and Physiology, a minor in Civics, and requires 


nine credits to be earned in Algebra, two in Geometry, five in 
General History, four in Elementary Rhetoric, two in Physical 
Geography, and fourteen in Latin, besides two credits in 
Elocution and Physical Culture. It presents a heavy two 
years' work. 

The Classical Course. 

The Classical course as outlined above, presents a thorough 
and strong course, quite equal, in character and amount of 
work required, to the work usually required in similar courses 
in the best Western colleges. Credits are required to be earned 
as follows in order to graduation: Greek eighteen, Latin 
fifteen, Mathematics thirteen, English ten, Sciences seventeen, 
History four, German five, French four, Philosophy eight, 
Economics two, Elocution two, Physical Culture two, a total 
of ioo credits. As now arranged, the course is believed to be 
admirably adapted to the needs of those desiring a thorough 
college course. It leads to the degree of Bachelor of Arts. 

The Scientific Course 

Differs from the Classical in that it offers more extended 
courses in English, Sciences, and Modern Languages, this 
work taking the place of Greek. Credits must be earned as 
follows in order to graduation: Latin fifteen, Mathematics 
thirteen, Sciences twenty-seven, English twelve, History four, 
German nine, French six, Philosophy eight, Economics two, 
Elocution two, Physical Culture two, a total of ioo credits. 
The course leads to the degree of Bachelor of Science. 

The Literary Course. 

This course has been arranged to accommodate the large 
number who desire to complete a systematic course of study 
within a comparatively short time without pursuing the study 
of the dead languages, and wish also to take special work in 
music or elocution in the college in addition to the regular 
work of the course. It is arranged upon a basis of three full 
studies, with elocution and gymnasium work extra, and 
requires the earning ot 77 credits in all to graduate. These 
credits are distributed as follows: Mathematics nineteen, 

m'minnville college. 13 

English seventeen, History eight, Sciences eighteen, German 
five, Philosophy four, Economics two, Elocution two, Physical 
Culture two. The course may be completed in four years 
from the Eighth grade. It leads to the degree of Bachelor of 

The Normal Course. 

This course has been arranged and adopted to meet the 
growing demand for special training for the profession of teach- 
ing. The course is a very strong three years' course. Only 
those will be admitted to it who have completed with pro- 
ficiency the work of the Grammar grade. The course is 
admirably adapted to meet the need of those who seek a 
thorough preparation for teaching in the Common and High 
Schools of the state. The first two 3'ears are devoted entirely 
to Academic and Collegiate studies; the third gives large 
attention to Pedagogics, both theoretical and practical. Effi- 
ciency in this course is guaranteed by the election the present 
year of Prof. Louis Barzee, for three years president of the 
State Normal School at Drain, Oregon, who will have general 
supervision of the work in this department, and will personally 
conduct the work in English and History, and the professional 
work of the senior year. 

For the completion of this course 84 credits are required 
to be earned, distributed as follows: Mathematics twenty-one, 
English eighteen, History eight, Sciences nineteen, Economics 
four, Philosophy four, Pedagogics, including the History and 
Philosophy of Education, and Methods and Practice of Teach- 
ing, ten; a total of 84 credits. Only those with the best 
preliminary preparation will be able to complete the course in 
the allotted time. The course leads to the degree of Bachelor 
of Didactics. 

Book=Keeping and Business Forms. 

No regular business course is offered in the college; but 
classes in Book- Keeping and Business Forms will be conducted 
when there is a demand for this work. Facilities will be 
furnished also for work in stenography and typewriting. 

i4 m'minnville college. 

Requirements for Admission. 

For admission to the Preparatory course, the work of the 
Eighth Grade or equivalent will be required of all candidates. 
Certificates of graduation from the Grammar grade will be 
accepted and the holders admitted without examination. 
Candidates lor admission without papers will be examined. 

For admission to the Freshman year of the Classical and 
Scientific courses, candidates will be required to furnish satis- 
factory evidence, either by certificate or examination, of having 
completed the work of the Preparatory course or equivalent. 

The requirements for admission to the Literary course are 
the same as for admission to the Preparatory course. For 
admission to the Normal course the same requirement will be 
made, except that evidence of proficiency will be demanded of 
all applicants. 

Evidence of good moral character will be required of all 
candidates for admission to the institution. 

Department of ninisterial Study. 

Many students having the ministry of the Gospel in view 
are year by year coming to the college. A need of the present 
is a well-equipped Department of Theological Instruction. In 
the absence of this at present the work has been so arranged 
as to offer, during the ensuing year, a large amount of work in 
subjects related to the preparation for the ministry. All 
mirristerial students will be eligible to take this work without 
extra expense. Credits earned in this department, however, 
will not apply on the work required for degrees. Certificates 
will be issued for work done in this department. 

Bible Study. 

By special action of the Board of the College some years 
since, Bible study is required of all students. As at present 
arranged, the courses call for two credits in Old Testament 
History in the Sophomore year; and two credits in Biblical 
Literature in the Senior year, besides two credits in New 
Testament Greek in the Junior year of the Classical course. 
Bible study is proving itself to be anything but a bugbear to 


those engaging in it. In Old Testament History, Price's 
Syllabus is used. In Biblical Literature, the Modern Readers' 
Bible will be in the hands of the students. 

Work will be required of all students throughout all 
courses. In the Preparatory Department, the work will con- 
sist of reading and interpretation. In the Freshman and 
Sophomore classes, a text- book on Elocution will be used. In 
the Junior year, the work will take tJe form of the preparation 
and presentation of essays or critiques, three being required of 
each member of the class during the year. Seniors will pre- 
pare and deliver three orations each during the year. Class 
work and private lessons in Elocution will be in charge of Mrs. 
Watson, of the Department of Art and Elocution (see schedule). 
The requiied work in the Junior and Senior years will be 
under President Boardman. 

Physical Culture. 

The college gives large attention to the physical develop- 
ment of its students. The gymnasium building is well adapted 
to the needs of this department of our work. The athletic 
interests of the college have been placed under the general 
oversight of the Athletic Association of the college, subject to 
the direction of the Faculty. The association will have charge 
of the gymnasium, athletic field, tenuis courts, etc. The 
coming year promises to see increased interest in all these 
lines of work. Classes will be organized in the gymnasium 
for systematic physical culture, both for men and women, 
under immediate direction of members of the Faculty. A 
system is under consideration by which students will receive 
credit for work done in the gymnasium, the same to apply on 
credits toward graduation, to a certain limit. 

Degrees and Certificates. 

The degree of Bachelor of Arts will be conferred upon 
those completing the Classical course, Bachelor of Science 
upon those completing the Scientific course, Bachelor of 
Letters upon those completing the Literary course, and Bach- 

16 m'minnville college. 

elor oi Didactics upon those completing the Normal course. 
Certificates will be issued for work done in Book- Keeping 
and Business Forms, and for work in the Department of Min- 
isterial Study. Diplomas will be issued in the Departments of 
Music and Art.

Mrs. Virginia Watson, who superintends the work in this 
department, secured her Dreparation in Art upon the Continent. 
She studied with the famous I. E. Couse, Paris, having been 
a member of his "life" class through a regular course of study; 
also having taken Oil Still Life and Water Colors with the 
same master. Her preparation for her work leaves nothing to 
be desired and makes it possible for the college to offer in this 
depaitment unexcelled facilities. 

In Elocution Mrs. Watson's preparation is no less satis- 
factory, she having studied w T ith Prof. W. T. Ross, of San 
Francisco, than whom the. Pacific Coast has no better master 
of his art.

The College's Location 

Affords no inconsiderable advantage as regards effectiveness of 
work on the part of students. The beautiful campus lies just 
within the suburbs of the quiet little city of 2500 people. The 
atmosphere about the school is conducive to study. There are 


few distractions. Quiet homes are available for students in 
ample numbers. The village location is the ideal for the 
academy and college. In this regard the college's location is 

The Religious Life 

And moral tone of the college are remarked by those who are 
best informed regarding them. The Young Men's and Young 
Women's Christian Associations maintain compact and vigorous 
organizations. Sunday afternoon chapel services with ad- 
dresses by the president or professors are common. The daily 
assembly is a purely religious service, at which all students are 
required to be present. The members of the faculty are all 
Christian men and women. The influences about students are 
positively and aggressively moral and religious. 

The Library. 

Some 2500 volumes are now on the shelves. They con- 
stitute one of the best college working libraries in the North- 
west. Some 50 volumes have been added during the past 
year. Books are available for use by all students without 
extra fees. In connection with the library is the reading-room, 
well furnished with the best in current periodical literature. 

The Chemical and Physical Laboratory. 

The Laboratory offers first-class facilities for thorough and 
extensive work in Chemistry and Physics. New apparatus 
has been added during the past year and more will be secured 
during the coming year. Furnishings are sufficient at the 
present time to enable students to do a very large amount of 
experiment work. The room used for laboratory purposes is 
large and light, though with the rapidly increasing equipments 
in apparatus, it will not long be adequate. Funds are already 
largely in hand for the building of a laboratory building on the 
campus, and this building will undoubtedly be built during 
the coming year. 

The Observatory, 

Situated on the campus, mounts a fine telescope. It is an 
equatorial, with six-inch object glass, and is the best on the 


north coast. It greatly enhances the value and interest of the 
study of Astronomy. 

The Gymnasium, 

Erected some three years ago, is well equipped with the appli- 
ances usually found in such institutions. Great interest, both 
for gentlemen and lady students, has centered about the 
gymnasium during the past year. Together with the athletic 
field, it offers excellent facilities for physical training. 


Philergian society is the literary society of the college. It 
is composed of both lady and gentlemen students, and holds 
its weekly meetings on Saturday evening. The society has a 
pleasant hall of its own. Its work is most important, and the 
opportunity it affords for earnest and profitable work is one 
which no student should fail to improve. 

The College Missionary Society is an organization for the 
increasing of missionary interest and intelligence among the 
students. Its meetings are held monthly during the year on 
Sunday afternoons. 

The Y. M. C. A. of the college has" a room of its own 
where its meetings are held. This room is furnished with 
literature bearing upon the lines of its work. The organization 
is well supported and fills a large place in the religious work- 
ings of the college. Its meetings are held weekly. 

The Y. W. C. A. is thoroughly organized and efficiently 
at work. The young ladies of the college are generally in- 
terested in its undertakings. Weekly meetings for prayer and 
Bible study exert an influence exalting and beneficial. 

The Athletic Association is an organization having in 
hand the equipment more fully of the gymnasium, and repre- 
senting athletic interests of the college. The past year has 
been the best year in its history; and the coming year bids 
fair to greatly exceed the past in actual accomplishment. 

The Oratorical Society fosters interest in oratory among 
the students. It cares for the college's welfare in the work of 

m'minnville college. 23 

the Inter-collegiate Oratorical Society of the state, in the 
annual contest of which society McMinnville's representative 
has already won one gold medal and twice earned second place. 
The society will also have in hand the contest for the Class of 
'94 Oratorical Prize. Students in the college classes are 
eligible to membership. 

The Philomathean Debating Club is a society of the young 
ladies of the college, organized especially for the preparation 
and delivery- of debates. It has enlisted very much interest 
among the lady students since its organization during the past 
vear, and encourages a line of work of great interest and profit. 
All lady students are eligible to membership. 

Training of Teachers. 

It is coming to be more and more generally recognized by 
those best able to judge, that a thorough college training is 
essential as a preparation for the best success in teaching. 
Short cuts to teachers' certificates are mischievous in the long 
run. The best teachers are those possessing the most liberal 
preparation, other things being equal. The college offers the 
best training school for teachers of the present day. With the 
electives in Pedagogy offered in this institution to those having 
teaching in view, and with the facilities now at command, the 
opportunities here offered for special training for teaching are 
unsurpassed. Graduates from any of the four regular courses 
of the college are eligible to examination for State Teachers' 
Diploma, by the provisions of the following legislative enact- 

Be it enacted by the Legislative Assembly of the State of Oregon, 
that all persons who shall complete a required course of study and receive 
a literary degree therefor in any institution of learning of collegiate or 
university ^rade, chartered or incorporated under the laws of this state, 
and shall have passed such examination thereon as may be approved by 
the State Board of Education, shall be entitled to receive a State Diploma, 
as is now authorized by law, and after six years of successful teaching in 
the State of Oregon, shall be entitled to the State Life Diploma, as now 
provided by law, when they shall have paid the required fee for said 



Self-government among students is the ideal sought. 
Young men and women are put upon their honor and are 
expected to conduct themselves as gentlemen and ladies. The 
college is not a penal institution. It is not a reform school. 
Students proving themselves incorrigible will be sent home. 
Observance of rules and regulations is required and insisted 
upon. (See rules and regulations.) 


Is a lovely little city of 2500 people, the county seat of Yamhill 
county. It is reached by means of the Southern Pacific rail- 
road, west side division. It is fifty miles south of Portland. 
Those coming from the south should transfer at Albany to the 
Oregon, California & Eastern to Coivallis, thence north by the 
Southern Pacific. McMinnville is a town of good moral tone, 
many churches, lovely homes, many of which are always avail- 
able as homes for students, and is an ideal college town. 

Dormitory Facilities 

Are very limited. It has been decided to offer the rooms in 
the main building to lady students only. There are some 
eight or ten of these rooms, capable of accommodating some 
sixteen lady students. Some of these rooms are furnished, 
some are not. They will be furnished on demand, or left to be 
furnished by the occupant, as desired. Rates will be from 
75 cents to $1.25 per month per student according to room, 
furnishing, etc. A boarding hall is conducted in the basement 
of the building where good home board may be had for $2.50 
per week. This will make it possible for a number of young 
women to secure most home-like accommodations in the build- 
ing at small cost. Make application for these rooms early. 
Description of rooms and full information will be sent on 

Homes in Families. 
Many families living near the college will furnish homes 
to students at small cost. Furnished rooms and board may be 


m'minnville college. 25 

had at from $2 to $3 per week in the best homes in the city. 
A list of such homes will be on file in the office of the president. 

"Bachelors' Hall." 

Many students board themselves at small expense. Rooms 
may be had, at low rates, in private houses. A building in the 
city will be fitted up with some six rooms available for students 
in this way. This would afford an excellent opportunity for a 
"gentlemen's club," by means of which good board may be 
had at absolute cost. Such chances are numerous. 


Tuition in the college, in all courses, is $11 per quarter of 
thirteen weeks. 

Tuition in music: Piano, one lesson per week, per quarter, 
$8.50; two lessons per week, per quarter, $15. Voice, private 
lessons, one per week, per quarter, $8.50; two per week $15. 
Organ and Harmony same. 

Tuition in elocution: Private lessons, fifty cents per 

Tuition in Art: One lesson per week, one hour, $8.50 per 
quarter; one lesson, two hours, or two lessons, one hour each, 
per week, per quarter, $15: two lessons, two hours each, per 
week, $20 per quarter. 

Special students taking one study in regular classes, $5 
per quarter. No reduction from full tuition where two studies 
are taken. 

Piano, for practice, one hour per day, $3 per quarter. 

Rooms in the main building may be had by lady students 
at from 75 cents to $1.25 per month according to room and 
furnishing. Board in main building $2.50 per week. All the 
dormitary accommodations in the main building are reserved 
for ladies. 

Rooms and board in private families may be had, every- 
thing furnished, at from $2 to $3 per week. 

Fee for chemicals in laboratory practice, $2 per quarter, 
students paying simply for what they use. 

Fee for diploma, $5. 

All bills are payable in advance. 

26 m'minnville college. 

A fair estimate of the actual expense of attending the 
college a year would be about as follows: 


Table board $ 78 00 $ 95 00 

Tuition 3300 3300 

Room, fuel, and light 15 00 30 00 

Washing 700 1000 

Books 8 00 12 00 

Total $141 00 $18000 

Students boarding themselves may greatly reduce these 
estimates. With due economy a young man or woman may 
pay actual and necessary expenses of living during a year at 
the college for $150, and board in a good family. 

Time Division of the Year. 

The year is divided into three quarters of thirteen weeks 
each, and each quarter into two terms of six weeks each, the 
remaining thirteenth week being divided between the two 
terms in reviews and examinations. Examinations will be 
held every six weeks. Students are urged to enter at the 
beginning of the year when at all possible. When compelled 
to enter alter the beginning of the year, one should enter at 
the beginning of a term. Tuition for a term of six weeks will 
be made $5.50; for less time no reduction. For more than 
six weeks a quarter's tuition will be charged. Consult the 
calendar on the second page for dates. 

Special Students. 

Students not desiring to take a regular course in the 
college may elect such studies as they desire to pursue from the 
courses offered during any term. Extra classes will not be 
organized for special students. 

Daily Programme. 

The daily programme of recitations will begin at 8:20 a. m. 
Periods will be forty minutes in duration. Five recitation 
periods will thus occupy the morning to 11:40 o'clock. The 
daily chapel service will be held from 11 540 to 12. An inter- 

m'minnviixe college. 27 

mission of an hour and twenty minutes will be given at noon. 
Work will be resumed at 1:20 p. m., lour forty-minute periods 
occupying the time to 4 p. m. 

Grades and Averages. 

An average standing in class work and examination of 70 
per cent is required in each branch in order to be advanced. 
If the pupil fall below 70 and reach an average of 60, he may 
be "conditioned" by his instructor upon the raising of his 
average to the passing grade. Those who fall below 60 are 
unconditionally required to do the work again in class. 

The Review 

Is a monthly journal of education published at the college. It 
is under the general oversight of the president, who edits the 
paper. It is devoted especially to the interests of the college, 
and contains a monthly resume of happenings of importance 
among the students and about the institution. Departments 
of the paper are under the editorial charge of the representa- 
tives of the various societies and organizations of the college. 
The paper also gives careful consideration to matters of 
general educational interest. With the putting in of the 
college press, facilities are at hand for the improving of the 
paper largely the coming year. The subscription price is fifty 
cents per year. Subscriptions and matter fur publication 
should be sent to Mr. J. E. Rhodes, managing editor. 

Class of '04 Oratorical Prize. 

A fund was subscribed by the Class of '94, the income 
from which is to be devoted annually to the offering of a prize 
in oratory, to be known as the "Class of '94 Oratorical Prize." 
Three prizes will be offered. Members of the Junior and 
Senior classes are eligible to compete. Orations are limited to 
900 words. The annual contest for 1898-9 will be held in 
December next. The contest for 1897-8 was held December 
10, 1897, J. S. Wallace taking first prize, Estella Noll, second; 
and L. W. Sawtelle, third.

Aid to Students. 

It is the cherished hope of the college that it may be able 
before long to offer material financial assistance to needy and 
deserving students. Until funds for this purpose are provided, 
however, no assurance can be given. The college aids a 
number of students each year by giving them sufficient work 
on the campus and about the buildings to enable them to pay 
their tuition thereby. This will be done the coming year as 
formerly. Opportunities for self-support are frequent. No 
student who has saved $100 and who is willing to work and 
economize, need fear to come to McMinnville with assurance 
that he will be able to complete a year's work in the institution. 
Many do it on much less money. 

Student Supply Work. 

Churches of the college's local field are reminded that a 
number of men are studying for the ministry at McMinnville, 
who are available for supply work in neighboring pulpits. 
Any work the churches may be able to offer these men will be 
considered by them a great favor, and their services may be 
had at little expense to the churches. In this way often our 
smaller churches may provide regular preaching for themselves 
and at the same time materiallv assist deserving young men to 
secure a better preparation for their life work. Churches 
desiring supplies may correspond with the president.

Have You made a Will? 

If so, did you remember McMinnville College? If you did 
not, will you not reconsider and ask the Lord if it will not be 
to his glory for you to change that will? If you have not made 
a will and are going to do so, will you not make McMinnville 
College one of your heirs? Do not write your own will. Be 
sure that the correct legal name of the institution is used. 

The following form of a bequest is suggested! " I give, devise, 

and bequeath to McMinnville College the sum of $ 

The interest on this fund may be used as the Trustees of said college 
may decide, either to meet the current expenses or to assist deserv- 
ing and approved students." 

A Word to Parents. 

If you cannot give your sons and daughters anything else,, 
give them a good education. It may call for self-denial and 
sacrifice on your part, but you can well afford to make it. Try 
and keep them in school every school day in the year. Then 
remember that it is of the utmost importance in what school 
you educate your sons and daughters. You cannot afford to 
educate them in any other than a Christian school. If you are 
a Baptist you cannot afford to educate tbem in any other than 
a Baptist school. If you are a Baptist in Oregon, why not 
educate them in McMinnville College?

A Bit of History. 

McMinnville college is one of the oldest collegiate insti- 
tutions on the Pacific Coast. It is the oldest Baptist college 
in the far west. The school was incorporated in 1858. The 
lorty years of its history have witnessed much of struggle and 
difficulty. For many years the college had no endowment, 
and the prosecution of its work was attended with great financial 
uncertainty. In these respects the history of other and greater 
colleges has been repeated here. With all its struggle and 
difficulty, however, the college preformed a most excellent 
and far-reaching w 7 ork in those early years of its history. 
Large numbers of young men and women received the training 
at McMinnville which enabled them to fill the places of impor- 
tance afterward occupied by them in all the Northwest. 

In 1882 the old campus and building in the center of the 
town of McMinnville were exchanged for the new campus and 
building half a mile south of the old site, in the borders of the 
town. With the change a new era of prosperity came. This 
has continued, with varying fortunes, to the present. During 

34 m'minnville college. 

the more recent years of the College's history healthy growth 
in many ways has characterized it. New buildings have been 
built on the campus, the grounds have been improved, the 
library greatly enlarged, the telescope mounted, the chemical 
laboratory equipped, the musical department furnished with 
two fine pianos, water put in the main building and other mate- 
rial improvements made, placing the college in the front rank 
of similiar institutions in the Northwest in point of material 
equipment. The productive endowment has also been greatly 
augmented. The present is the resultant of forces long ago in 
operation. "Other men have labored and we have entered 
into their labors." 

Rev. George C. Chandler, D. D., was the college's first 
president. He was universally loved and esteemed for his 
scholarship and self-sacrificing devotion to the struggling course 
of Christian education in the west. Prof. J. W. Johnson, now 
of the chair of Latin, University of Oregon, was president of 
the college during one of the most prosperous periods of its 
early history. Mark Bailey, Sr., Ph. D., afterward professor 
of Mathematics in the University of Oregon for nearly twenty 
years, was one of McMinnville's most faithful and honored 
presidents. Following Prof. Bailey's term, Prof. J. E. Magers, 
late county judge of Yamhill county, was at the head of the 
college for some two years or more. His term of service was 
marked by enthusiasm and thoroughness of work on the part 
of the large body of students. Rev. G. J. Burchett became 
president in 1878. Under his administration the effort for a 
new building took shape, and the money for the same was 
largely subscribed. His administration was marked by a large 
revival of denominational interest in the college. Rev. E. C. 
Anderson, D. D., followed him. The new building was occu- 
pied during his term of six years, and hopeful advances were 
made. The late president, Rev. T. G. Brownson, D. D., 
entered upon the administration of the college's affairs in 1887. 
His term of nine years' duration was by far the most eventful 
in the college's history, the improvements and advances in 
equipment previously noted having taken place during this 

The names of the college's various presidents have been 


given. Its history has been vitally related to their lives and 
endeavors. A long roll might be called, however, of the 
names of faithful ministers and laymen who, during the long 
and trying years of the college's history, have borne the 
burdens of its management and support and have contributed, 
in time and sympathy and means, to its upbuilding and its 
ultimate success. In a true sense the history of the denomina- 
tion in Oregon is written in the growth and development of 
McMinnville College.
